Dangerous pothole

Reported via desktop in the Road Defect category anonymously at 14:50, Friday 27 January 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

A very large, dangerous pothole in the middle of the road, just by the crossing. I see cars swerve to avoid it potentially raising a risk of an accident.

  • I live at 143 Upper Elmers End Road directly opposite the pedestrian crossing and where the large pothole is situated. Every time a bus or lorry passes by and hits the pothole vibrations can be felt through the upper floors of our house. It disrupts sleep and may cause structural damage to the house over time.
